Inspirational talks

Exploring ways to (re)connect, share information and show solidarity among the network throughout the challenges we’re all facing, we’ve reached out to some of our former guest speakers to ask them about their experiences during COVID-19 and how it has impacted their business. By sharing their perspectives in a series of short videos, we hope to boost and inspire you.
